Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-01-07  Pictura: This is an extraordinary game! I recommend that before you play through it, try "Guess the Move" as I have done ...
May-25-11  Marmot PFL: Got most of the moves, but missed a few too :) For a while I thought Spassky was crazy, letting the f-file open when white had the long diagonal and N coming to e6.
Jul-23-19  King.Arthur.Brazil: After 42.♔f1 ♕xf2+ 43. ♕xf2 ♖xf2+ 44. ♔xf2 ♔xg7... hopeless ending.
